Coming up roses! ~ A pattern launch and a giveaway…

I spent the Easter break with my head down, putting together my newest pattern. With the computer choosing to spontaneously freeze at critical moments… with my frustration at "things not happening quickly enough"… Easter chocolate came in pretty handy. Funny how chocolate can just hit the spot, soothing the frustrated and impatient soul. : ) 

Would you like to see the "As Roses Bloom" pattern cover? It's hot off the press. Lori, of Pattern Press, is printing them as we speak.

With all the recent pattern writing said and done I feel like celebrating! There's just one thing to do. It's time for an…

As Roses Bloom pattern launch

“As Roses Bloom” is a small quilt pattern ~ approximately 18 ½" x 29". The centre panel may be used to create a small cushion ~ 11" x 15 ½". The pattern is filled with photographic detail for creating 3-dimensional roses, rosebuds and semi-detached leaves. You will also find a simple quilt label design included, which coordinates with leafy boughs of the centre panel.

Entries end at midnight, May 5th. So plenty of time for you to spread the word… do you have a quilting friend with a soft spot for roses?

Did you know there is a One Day In May facebook page ? I'd love to see you there! "Liking" the page means instant delivery of my new blog posts to your newsfeed. You can also link up with other stitchers and be notified of upcoming craft events. There is quite the craft community happening over there. Who said facebook is for computer bound teens?

Until next time,

    Hi Melissa
    Can we buy your patterns direct from you?

  15. Hi Glenys, thank you for visiting my blog.

    Im afraid that I dont have any patterns to sell directly. I deal directly with a distributor called Pattern Press. They sell wholesale to various stores across the world. The number of stockists is increasing quite quickly which has been great to see. I can direct you to a couple of Australian online stores. Lori is looking after orders while Helen is in the US. Patterns are sent out with the minimal postage rate of a standard large letter. Sarah from Quilt Fabric Delights is also lovely to deal with. Type One Day In May into the search bar at the top left to find my designs.

    Either of the stores can also provide you with my newest design As Roses Bloom ~ Mini Quilt and Cushion, if that is the pattern youre looking for. Being new, it hasnt been uploaded to their sites as yet. Just send them an email and theyll be able to send it out to you.
    Thanks again for your enquiry…. hope the above information helps. There are more stockists listed on the left hand side of the blog.

    Kind regards, Melissa
